The Chicago Blackhawks scored two goals in 17 seconds – the last one with 59 ticks remaining – to score a stunning 3-2 win and a second Stanley Cup in four years.

The casualties – the departed – are the reigning heartbreakers, the Boston Bruins, who won their own Cup two years on Vancouver Canucks ice and also completed a remarkable comeback to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 this year, in Round 1.

Patrick Kane – who had 19 points in 23 playoff games for Chicago – won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, and David Bolland added the game-winner at 19:01 of the third period, batting in a wacky rebound off a Johnny Oduya point shot that caromed off the post and barely settled behind Tuukka Rask.

After Milan Lucic scored to give Boston a 2-1 lead in the third period, Bryan Bickell tied it at 18:44 (assists from Toews and Duncan Keith).

“We’ve said it before that that team in 2010, we really didn’t know what we were doing,” Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews told NBC Sports (NHL.com). “We played great hockey and we were kind of oblivious to how we were playing.

“This time we know definitely how much work it takes and how much sacrifice it takes to get back here, and this is an unbelievable group. We’ve been through a lot together this year and this a sweet way to finish it off.”

Toews won the 2010 Conn Smythe Trophy in Philadelphia after Kane’s Stanley Cup-winning goal in overtime, in Game 6, and Kane took the individual honour this year after Toews’s two-point performance in Game 6.

“Starting off the season like we did, with so many wins, and the pressure of winning the Presidents’ Trophy, and hanging onto that pressure all the way to the end,” said Kane. “You know, you’re down 2-1 in the last minutes then you come through with a 3-2 win. I mean, it’s unbelievable.”
